Good morning! Have you register-
Well, "Bill" Johnstone hasn't been
eliminated yet, anyway.
The Muskogee correspondent of the
Oklahoman charges that "Uaraeid's
territory trip, planned to flim flam the
red man, is reeking with politics." It's
probably true. Koosevelt is now using
the census department of the federal
government for partisan purposes in
indian Territory. Under the plea oi
investigating postal conditions, Assist-
ant Postmaster General Hitchcock, son
of the unlamented Ethan A., toured the
south to line up the negroes and post
masters who will attend as delegates
the national Republican conventifln
which will nominate a candidate for
president. It has been repeatedly
charged that Koosevelt has used the
federal judiciary for partisan purposes
and the charges of this debasement
seem to be pretty well substantiated.
No department of the government un-
der Roosevelt's thumb has escaped
some mean use.
Newspaper publishers read with fear
and trembling that the paper makers
are organizing another combine. The
four flushing, trust busting President
put the former paper trust out of busi-
ness and the price of paper immediate-
ly advanced. If another paper trust
is put out of business, a shett of white
paper will cost as much as a silk hand-
kerchief, Qreat is the Koosevelt trust-
When yon have started the day right
by reading the Examiner, go and regis-
Well, it ought to afford Sam Brown
iome satisfaction to know that his fate
has been settled.
P. J. Yaeger, the Democratic candi-
date for state senator, probably won-
ders what the row's all about.
The only new work the Cudahy Oil
company has under way is the construc-
tion of a rig for No. 3 on the Georgia
Stokes land, 23-27-12. The last well
completed by the Cudahy company was
L. H. Keys No. 5 on July 27.
Democratic candidates who visited
Ramona Wednesday evening declare
that they could ntfly find three Republi-
cans in the entire town and that they
are on the doubtful list.
No one need be surprised if George
C. Prieatley is the Republican candi-
date for state senator. The fame of his
achievements in Pennsylvania politics
has followed him here and he has lots
of friends who want him to get into the
game and show what be is capable of.
Every Democrat should register and
every Democrat should contribute his
mite to the cause of Democracy in
"Washington county. The fact that the
county is safely Democratic should not
cause indifference on the part of the
voters. If you have not registered, do
so this morning.
The tax payers of the First congres-
sional district should never forget the
fact that Col. Robert L. Owen had ob-
tained from the United States an agree-
ment to vote an approporation of $135,
^00 to pay the expenses of the consti
Itional convention. Bird AIcGuire
went among his Republican friends in
the house of representatives and secur-
ed the defeat of the bill and thereby
entailed upon them not less than twen-
ty to thirty thousand dollars, which
ought to have been paid by the nation-
al government, and which would have
been paid by it had it not been for Mc-
Guire. He can not say that it wus the
objections to the constitution thai caus-
ed him to do this, for at that time
there was little, if any of the constitu-
tion written and not a line of it for-
mulated. Of the $135,000, which the
tax payers of the state of Oklahoma
will have to meet, the figure* above
stated will approximate the amount
which the First congressional district
McGuire's own district, will have to
pay through his treachery to his own
constituents—a constituency, whose in-
terests he had sworn to protect, and be-
trayed. McGuire dare not get upon the
rostrum and deny this for the cold fact*
and figures are stronger arguments than
and windy explanation he has or can

According to the Cincinnati Inquirer
the black races arc doomed to extinc-
tion. They have nowhere held their
own against the competition of the
Abandoning all hope of electing any
of their candidates, the Republicans
have re entered into a fierce fight for
control «f the "organization." The
factions resemble two cats with their
tails tied together and thrown across a
clothes-line, and remind one of the little
classic: "There once were two cats in
Kilkenny; they fought and they fit,and
they fit and they fought, instead of two
cats there warn't an v."
It wa6 due to the fact that A. W.

GIVE THE FACTS.
j Editor Examiner: In your issue of
yesterday you attempt to give an ac-
count of "a new feud within the ranks
of the Republican party in this coun-
growing out of the selection of the
member of the congressional commit-
teeman for this county. There ig no
feud or any soreness or disappointment
over the selection of Mr. Pollock as he
was agreed to after a thorough under-
standing and an agreeable satisfaction
with all the delegates at Tahlequah
from this county. The facts are that
some friction and trickery was attempt-
ed in the selection of the committee-
man. There were six of the regularly
elected delegates present and six prox-
ies. Mr. Palmer, representing A. R.
Cooley, who gave Win. Johnstone his
proxy which he transferred to Mr. Pal-
mer; Harry Dorman represented Joe I
Skinner; Sam Magee presented a proxy
from Mayor Beasley, and the proxies
of Mr. Ladd, Mr. Heyl ijnd Mr. eon
nelly were presented by T. B. Higgins,
making the twelve delegates for Wash-
ington county who were entitled to
vote. The delegation met in caucus,
naming Henry Montgomery as chair-
man and Mr. Campbell as clerk. Mr.
Pollock was named for committeeman
by Palmer and Wm. Higgins by Mr.
Speck. A motion to call the roll of
delegates was made and ruled out of
order by Mr. Montgomery. A vote was
ordered by the chairman by raising
hands, Pollock having five hands and
Higgins seven hands. The chairman,
Mr. Montgomery, ruled out and disfran-
chised delegates Ladd, Heyl and Con-
nelly as voted by T. B. Higgins, in the
face of a protest made. These three
delegates had as good a right to vote
as did Montgomery, Sam Magee, Pal-
mer or the others who held proxies. To
avoid any publicity, and shystering or
friction in the delegation before the
convention, it was suggested that the
delegates get together, which was
agreed to and an understanding had as
to future work in the interest of the I
party and Mr. Pollock's name would!
be the only one presented to the con-1
vention for committeeman.
The Examiner has been imposed up-
on by some pin-head who certainly did
not know what the facts are, when it
says that an agreement was made to |
support Sam Magee for state senator
in return for any number of votes of [
Washington county delegation for Carl!
Magee for congress. No such agree-1
ment favorable to Sam Magee or any
other individual Republican was ever
had. The delegates of this county who
were in closp touch with the Republi-
cans of Tulsa, and who had authority
to talk for the Republicans of the coun-
ty have not suggested yet any individ-
ual Republicans of Washington Co. for
state senator,and have not even agreed
with the Tulsa delegation that Wash-
ington county will present a candidate.
He seven delegates to the congression-
al convention who supported the Tulsa
candidate, are not bosses of the party,
like some who presume to do things
without consulting the interests of the
party or the wishes of the file of the
Republican party, in selecting so im-
portant a position as that of state sen-
ator. The facts are that the Republi-
cans of Tulsa will support any credit-
able citizen of Washington county who
may be agreed to and presented to the
convention on next Saturday, August
17th, and he will get the twenty-four
votes from Tulsa, if the delegation
from this county can present a credit-
able citizen of Washington county who
will strengthen the Republican ticket,
and who will not burden or endanger
Republican success at the polls; a state
senator can be nominated from this
county and can be elected from this
district. WILLIAM HIGGINS.
to his friends and his steadfast adher-
ence to his convictions made him a man
of admirable characteristics, and his
qualities were best appreciated by those
j who were privileged to intimate ac-
quaintance. Just an even four weeks
ago he was taken ill and on the same
day he was removed to the hospital. A!,
though his illncBS was diagnosed as ty-
phoid fever, it lacked some of the symp-
toms of that ailment, making bis case
difficult of treatment.

DEATH ENDS A. E.
END CAME TO SECRETARY OF MA-
SONIC LODGE AT 12:25 THIS
A. E. Reed, secretary of the Masonic
lodge and manager of the Bartlesville
water works, died-at the hospital at
12:25 Tuesday morning of typhiod fever
after an illness of four weeks.
Because of his connection with the
Masonic lodge and the water company
Mr. Reed was one of the best known
men in the eity. He came here from
Helena, Mont., nearly four years ago to
•ake the position he held at the time
of bis death. Hia fidelity to avery In-
terest entrusted to hia care, his loyalty
er's District. He has been successful
in hia farming here, and this success
is due to his untiring industry and splen
did business ability. He now owns sev-
eral valuable pieces of rental property
in the town of Dewey and conducts a
first-class restaurant business there. He
is still heavily interested in farming
near Dewey, and is one of the leading
men of affairs in the Northern half of
the county. His long business experi-
ence, together with his rugged honesty
and his knowledge of men, especially
qualify him to serve his constituents
ably as commissioner and to properly
safeguard the public business. While
he has been a lifelong Democrat he will
have a large following of Republicans
who have been his neighbors and
friends for years and are familiar with
his qualifications for the office to which
he aspires. "Dick" Clifford will come
in on election day with a handsome ma-
jority and Washington county will be
entitled to congratulations.

Philippi, W. Va. "He saw Chamber-
lain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy advertised in the Philippi Re
publican and decided to try it. The re-
sult is one bottle cured him and he has
not suffered with the disease for eigta
teen motnbs. Before taking this remc
